Abdullah b. Adam is a member of the Muslim community in the UK. He participated in Jihad in various countries in the previous century. Although he is a free man today, he was imprisoned in the chaos following 9/11 when the mainstream Islamic notion of Jihad was hysterically conflated with terrorism and attacking civilians.
